Editors' Notes
Although described as a sub-genus by Haeckel, Cyphantella has been used as a genus in the description of the species listed here.

[Junior objective synonym of Cyphanta Haeckel,1887a. However, Loeblich and Tappan, 1961, p.223 validate the use of Cyphantella for this taxon because Cyphanta Haeckel, 1887a is a homonym of Cyphanta Walker,1865.

Cyphantella is here treated as a subgenus of Cyphanta.]
